  • In an interview with Tim LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins, a reader asked the significance of the number "216." The authors provided the following answer:
    • JJ: 216 is the product of a mathematical equation. I mean, Antichrist would know enough not to blatantly use 666 (which is a clue)
    • LB: We can't actually give you the solution to 216, but you should be able to figure it out with the hint from Jerry above.
